Take a bath?

Hi ladies. I had my TVH on Wed. and back home today. I never thought to ask, and was not told if I could take a bath? I know I can take a shower, but what about an old fashioned bath? How I want one so bad, but don't know if it's a good idea. I don't want to bother the doc. on a Fri. nite with such a trivial thing. Any advice?

I would think you should not sit in any water for at least 2 weeks. That is what my doc told me after my D & C. Better call and check with your doc before taking a bath

Check with your Dr. I also had a TVH 8wks ago and was told that I could have a bath right away. I did just that but made sure my DH scrubbed the tub every time. Good Luck!

Take a bath?

Hello! I had TAH on 11/6 and my doctor said no bath. He said shower is OK, but don't let the water be too long on my incision. Part of the reason is softening of stitches before you have healed up. I would imagine that your internal stitches might need the same care. I wonder if some of the ladies who have an OK for a bath have stitches or staples. I think, if I were you, I would wait on the bath and call the doctor next week.

My doc said about 3-4 weeks for bathing. But I waited longer, just to be sure.
